This event runs from February 4 – 11.
As we are all discovering, the pandemic has caused nimble responses to change. Though Giving Hearts Day is nominally a virtual event, many nonprofits have created special in-person events like the Museum’s “Chili Bowl.” Our 2021 version will not be in-person. No seven types of scrumptious chilis. No music from The Cropdusters. No performances from Red River Dance.
What we will have are 150+ ceramic bowls created through the skill and generosity of local potters. Each bowl can be purchased for $20 – this year with credit card and check only – and will include five chili recipes from past chili-makers. Additionally, there will be five $25 gift cards to Rustica Eatery & Tavern, Blackbird Woodfire, Maxwell’s Restaurant & Bar, and 46 North Pint & Provisions scattered amongst the bowls for five fortunate winners. And we will conduct our “Day” for one week – 2.4 through 2.11, ending with Giving Hearts Day. During the week, bowl purchasers will be asked to schedule a time to come to the Museum to view all the bowls and make their selection. And as always, all proceeds from “Chili Bowl” support the Museum’s clay-centric education programs like the ever-popular Clay for Couples, Clay Sampler, and Plains Art Inside & Out.
To purchase a bowl(s) check back here the week of February 4th.
